Royal bio movies - Do they ever get these right?
Deadline reported this morning that the Lifetime Channel will be making a movie on Prince William and Kate. William & Kate which chronicles the relationship between Prince William, second in line to the throne of the British monarchy, and Kate Middleton, the stunning daughter of upper middle-class commoners, from the moment the two met at Scotland’s University of St. Andrews, through the ups and downs.
I wonder if it'll go anything like this:
Girl grows up as a commoner (not council estate) dreams of becoming a princess one day. Prince loses his mother in terrible car accident (conspiracies run amock) Girl cries at TV and says the line - "I'll take care of you one day."
Girl now 17 reads The Sun newspaper... Headine "PRINCE TO ATTEND ST. ANDREWS"
Girl steals all the pennies from her mother's purse and runs away to Scotland. -Posing as a student, she stalks the Prince everyday. But he never notices her, even when she dresses like a tart to get his attention. Then a lightbulb goes off in her head. "I'll be shy and coquettish, just like his Mother."
And it worked The Prince instantly noticed her and he wooed her, then he proposed, she thought about it for a HOT minute, agreed and Now they are going to spend all the common people's money on a gigantic wedding. Stay tuned for part two - Wills falls in love with a horse and Kate goes mental.
I wonder if it will get the Royal seal of approval.
